SEC Basketball Tournament Ticket Information

Back to Top

Although it's more well-known as a football juggernaut, the Southeastern Conference boasts one of the longest-running men's basketball tournaments in the country with a history of excellence that few leagues can match. With double-digit National Championships to its credit, the SEC and its conference tournament has become a stepping stone that will launch a team into the NCAA Tournament. Begun back in 1933, the event was initially held at the Atlanta Athletic Club, where the Kentucky Wildcats won the first of many SEC Championships. Over the years, the tourney has been held at the Georgia Dome, the Birmingham Coliseum, the Bridgestone Arena and many other venues that housed the pulse-pounding action on the hardwood.

The SEC Men's Basketball Tournament was a consistent force in the college basketball world since its inception, and the University of Kentucky emerged as the juggernaut that other teams tried to emulate. The Wildcats captured every title during the 1940s, with the exception of 1941 and 1943 when Tennessee stole the show. In the late 2000s, the SEC experienced remarkable recruiting growth, and it is now widely considered one of the must-watch tourneys of the postseason and plays a major role in NCAA Tournament seeding.

Fans attending the SEC Tournament buy tickets for sessions instead of individual games, so make sure to check this page to find what session your team is playing in. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for SEC Basketball Tournament tickets.

SEC Basketball Tournament Event Guide

What is the best time to buy tickets for the SEC Tournament?

If you’re just going as a spectator and not a fan of any specific team, buy as early as possible. If you want to see your team, wait until you know what seed they are and then jump on tickets for that session!

Where can I find the SEC tournament schedule?

The 2014 SEC tournament schedule is listed as soon as it is made available by the tournament, and TicketCity has all the dates and times posted above for all sessions. The tournament is split up into sessions, with each session containing two games except for the last one, which is just the championship game. The gates usually open one hour before the first game of every session. The SEC tournament is in Nashville, TN., and runs from March 11-15 at the Bridgestone Arena.

Can I buy tickets for just the game that my team is playing in?

For this tournament, tickets are only sold as sessions and therefore you are buying a pass to two games (unless it’s the final).

2010 SEC Tournament - College Hoops at its BEST!!! The 2010 SEC Men's Basketball Tournament in Nashville, TN was one of the best sporting experiences I have witnessed. I have been to many top sporting events including several Kentucky Derbies, a few trips to the Masters golf tournament, and a couple of Super Bowls.....and this event ranked right up there with any of those. As an avid Kentucky basketball fan, I was eager to see if our new coach and top rated recruiting class would pay off in the post season. The excitement in Nashville was unreal with every hotel sold out and ticket books selling for more than 6 times face value just to get in the arena. Everywhere you turned, was a sea of blue and white with the lingering chant of "C-A-T-S....Cats, Cats, Cats...." Every bar and restaurant from Broadway to 2nd Avenue was boiling over with excitement as Kentucky fans united during this unseasonable warm week in Nashville. Our group purchased unbelievable seats in the lower arena from TicketCity....and we were sitting right behind one of the biggest Kentucky Fans of all time......Ashley Judd!! The first day of the tournament brought some exciting match-ups with Alabama beating South Carolina, Tennessee defeating LSU, Florida outlasted Auburn, and Georgia upset Arkansas. A great day of basketball and Kentucky (who earned a bye) hadn't even taken the court!! Day 2 - After a long night enjoying the sights and sounds of Nashville, TN with friends....it was time for serious business. Bridgestone Arena holds almost 20,000 fans for basketball and it seemed like everyone was in Blue and White. Electricity was in the air as the top rated Wildcats took the floor. Kentucky held off a hard charging Alabama team to win by 6 in a much closer game than most fans expected. With a deep sigh of relief, we could sit back and enjoy the next three games. Tennessee advanced past Ole Miss to earn a rematch against Kentucky, whom they beat earlier in the season. Mississippi State and Vanderbilt also advanced to play each other in the semi-final round. The table was set for an unbelievable Saturday in Nashville. Kentucky fans once again fill the streets of Nashville as the neon lights illuminated the blue and white shirts of choice. Day 3 - Started off with more enthusiasm I have ever felt for a sporting event. Our Wildcats were set to take on the Tennessee Volunteers in a rematch many had hoped for. Tennessee had beaten Kentucky earlier in the season to hand them one of their two losses for the year. Tennessee was ranked #15 in the nation and Cats fans were expecting a heavy weight fight. From the opening tip, Kentucky absolutely blew Tennessee out of the gym. I have never heard such loud roars as our team put on a highlight reel in front of the Kentucky dominant crowd. Final score....UK - 74......TN - 45. Maybe one of the finest exhibitions of basketball I have witnessed at the college level. It was simply amazing.....an experience of a lifetime!! Mississippi State went on to defeat Vanderbilt and the UK faithful were primed for the final game on Sunday. Day 4 - After checking out of the hotel early, our group gathered at our normal pre-game watering hole. It was a bit quieter than usual because everyone had lost their voices from cheering wildly the day before!! Expectations were high with Kentucky heavily favorite over a hungry Mississippi State team who needed a win to advance to the NCAA Tournament. The game was neck and neck the entire time......and each time Kentucky tried to make a run, Mississippi State answered with runs of their own. The halftime score was much closer than anyone anticipated with UK down 4 points. It looked like we were in for a dogfight to win the championship. As the final minutes of the game drew closer.....it appeared Mississippi State might prevail. They had our backs against the wall with only a few seconds remaining. Kentucky was down 3 points with the ball.....inbound play and Mississippi State fouled. What a great coaching move! Kentucky only had one choice.....make the first free-throw, intentionally miss the second....hope to grab the rebound....then make a shot to force overtime. Our odds were one in a million! The first free throw went in! The second was missed on purpose.....we DID grab the rebound....but missed the 3 pointer for the win!! Just enough time was left on the clock for Cousins to tap the follow up shot in to barely beat the buzzer!! WE DID IT.....we tied the game and we were heading to overtime. I just witnessed my first buzzer beater shot and it was thrilling!! We went on to beat Mississippi State in overtime and celebrated all the way back home!! I would recommend that every college basketball fan try to attend their conference championship. I have been to the SEC Tournament several times and have enjoyed every one. TicketCity has been able to assist us with great tickets, and even point us in the right direction for hard to find hotel rooms and sports travel agents that can organize airfare or bus trips. The 2010 SEC Tournament was an experience I will never forget and I can't wait to attend this year in Atlanta!! September 9, 2010
